Topics ranged from ways to address water pollution to mosquito-borne illnesses to urban food deserts which they illustrated through a short video they submitted as one of 51 state winners.

As national finalists, the teams will present their projects to a live panel of judges on March 18 at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. Five national grand prize winners will then be selected by a panel of judges, Samsung employees and the public, through online voting which is open 12:01 a.m. EST, March 2, 2015 through 11:59 p.m. EST, March 25, 2015 at Samsung.com/solve.
